MARCH is brain injury awareness month. Be safe. Wear your helmet.

Concussions can occur in both young and old!

Prevention is paramount…Safety first!

March is Brain injury awareness month! Every month should be prevention of concussion, brain injury from falls or an accident. Everyone is at risk – both young and older people.

As spring and summer approaches, we are outdoors more enjoying the great weather! Along with great weather, we are more active.

Youth: Young children, tweens, and teens are at greatest risk for concussions from direct impact sports – soccer, football, cycling. Emergency room visits have skyrocketed!

Adults: Older adults who fall are also at risk for concussions from a blow to the head and often go unnoticed! If you hit your head when you fall – this is a concussion!

It’s important whatever the age, that we check out your condition after a blow to your head and make sure that you are monitored closely following a concussion.

What are some of the signs of concussion?

  • drowsiness,
  • blurred vision,
  • unsteadiness with walking or balance, and
  • Up to 79% of people report dizziness and 56% experience balance impairment following a concussion.

After a concussion it’s important to be monitored for at least 24 hours. For a few days and weeks after the concussion you may gradually start progressing back to activity and/or sports.

Tips for return to activity or sport:

  • Remove from play or activity and REST for the day ~ both cognitive and physical exertion.
  • Seek medical help if symptoms worsen. You may need a CT or MRI.
  • Protect from additional injury
  • Neurocognitive assessment
  • Balance testing
  • Medical and/or physical therapy if recovery is incomplete after 2-3 weeks.
